How does one differentiate between a resend and useful data? Does the
value in the /stats page, or on the peer-list page indicate useful
data? If so, it is steadily rising, even when the peer is backed off,
even when my downstream is peaked at FIVE TIMES my downstream limit :p
completely saturating my downstream (upstream is always generally
low-traffic), for many (~5+) minutes.
